Even though Mike Franks (Muse Watson) is long dead and buried, his presence is still felt by Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and McGee (Sean Murray) when the two travel to Afghanistan in this week’s episode of “NCIS.”

They’re following leads in a murder case that takes them to an Afghan women’s shelter that Franks secretly supported for years.

“This is a story about a time a couple of years ago,” executive producer/showrunner Gary Glasberg told XfinityTV. “It was before Franks passed away, at an event that took place and a situation between the two men.”

Also in the episode, airing Tuesday night (Oct. 15) at 8/7c on CBS, Jackie Geary plays NCIS Agent Susan Grady, a polygraph expert, who will be a temporary addition to the team, filling in just as Vera Strickland (Roma Maffia) did last week following the exit of agent Ziva David (Cote de Pablo) a week earlier.

Glasberg talked to us about the episode — titled “Anonymous Was a Woman” — and what the future holds for TV’s highest-rated drama series this season. Here’s what he had to say:

XfinityTV: You mentioned in our last interview that Mike Franks would be returning. So in this episode, will we see him more in flashbacks than in Gibbs’ imagination like his last appearance?

Glasberg: That is a good way to describe it. Steve Binder wrote a really fantastic episode that I am really proud of. It is a story from Franks’ past that effects Gibbs. We do some flashbacks, and we look into a world and an issue that is significant, concerning, and emotional. I just finished watching the episode last night and I’m proud of it.

McGee goes to Afghanistan in this one. Is his role going to be changing now that Ziva is gone and he will be out in the field more?

I think we just enjoy sending Sean out into the Middle East. No one wears a helmet quite like Sean Murray. This was a storyline where we felt it was appropriate for McGee to go with Gibbs. I don’t necessarily think we are making it a habit, but it was right for this story and I will let you be the judge.

Is the reason Tony (Michael Weatherly) doesn’t go, fallout from the loss of Ziva? How is Tony doing?

We are trying to deal with Tony handling Ziva’s absence in as real and organic a way as we can. This was a big deal. This was a woman he felt very strongly about, and this relationship was very, very significant. He is going to feel that for quite some time. It is going to resonate, and it doesn’t just resonate with Tony. It resonates through our entire team. Even though Gibbs may not express himself as verbally, it resonates with him, too. It’s just a glance from Tony’s desk to Ziva’s desk. It’s little things that will carry through in episodes to come.

We’ve seen Roma Maffia fill in, and in this episode Jackie Geary. Also, Agent Borin (Diane Neal), a Coast Guard agent, will come back and work with the team. Who else is going to be filling in at Ziva’s desk?

It’s not really filling in at the desk. Every story has a reason why we incorporate some visiting characters. For example, Delilah (Margo Harsman) steps in. We need her assistance for a Department of Defense storyline. She connects and participates in a case, as well.

It is fun to have this array of characters that are helping out. Ultimately, we are building to this place in November where a story comes up that involves the NSA and an NSA analyst. That is when we meet Ellie Bishop, played by Emily Wickersham, and I’m very, very excited about her.

Could she actually be Ziva’s replacement at some point?

You’re never going to hear me say that because at the end of the day, I’m not looking to replace Ziva. I’m looking to add something new and different to the mix. The Bishop character will be very different and bring something we haven’t had before.

Is Emily Wickersham going to do more than one episode?

Certainly. Right now, we are looking to have her for three episodes and we will see what happens after that. I have been nothing but thrilled with the stories we are doing, the preparation we are doing, and my time with Emily has been fantastic.

The “Anonymous Was a Woman” episode of “NCIS” airs Tuesday (Oct. 15) at 8/7c on CBS.

Ziva has left the building. (Or, if you want to get technical, she never returned to the building.)

But even though we’ve seen the last of Cote de Pablo for the foreseeable future, there’s plenty of action to come on NCIS, according to executive producer Gary Glasberg. Part of it, he says, will be seen in tonight’s episode, which he’ll give you scoop on in our interview below, among many other things…

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Obviously this was such a huge moment for the series and for the team — can you talk about what’s going to come next after all of this?
GARY GLASBERG: This is a huge deal for us and to suddenly not have Ziva present is something that we’re absolutely going to feel moving forward and if we didn’t feel it we’d be cheating ourselves and the audience. That absence in the squad room, that empty desk is something that we’re going to acknowledge. We’re going to acknowledge it in the episode that airs [tonight] and in the episode that follows that. We’re really trying to approach this as realistically and organically as possible, and it’s going to take time for our characters to move on and they all have opinions and thoughts about that and it’s been worked into the storylines and hopefully people will go through the process with them.

I have to ask about Tony’s ‘I will’ list — is that going to come up eventually again?
Well, you know we like to plant little seeds and leave cookies for people and it certainly is something that could pop up again. It won’t in the immediate future, but I’d love to go back and take something that was planted and revisit it twelve or fifteen episodes later.

Or, like, four seasons….
Exactly and that’s the thing that NCIS can do that nobody else can.

I read something on Twitter about some possible deleted scenes. Were there any moments between Tony and Ziva that didn’t make it into the episode?
There really wasn’t much. There was some dialogue lines and little things here and there, but there really wasn’t. I wish I could say I’ve got some sort of vault of footage that ended up on the cutting room floor, but really you’re seeing most of what was shot.

Talk about some of the specifics of some of the episodes coming up.
We’ve got some really good stuff. The intention, especially in this third episode, is to really reset and give people an NCIS that is the reason they tune in and have some fun and some lightness and have a really good prime story and an investigation. The episode is called “Under the Radar,” and it really feels like a strong, old-time NCIS episode. Granted there’s an acknowledgement that that desk is empty, but we’re really back to normal to a certain extent. In the episode that follows that, we’ve got a Muse Watson/Mike Frank episode that revisits something from his past — very, very happy with that episode. It’s very emotional. Lolita Davidovich is in that episode and does a terrific job. After that, we revisit [season 8, episode 22] “Baltimore.” It’s sort of “Baltimore, Part 2.” It takes us back to before Tony was a detective, to when he was a beat cop. A crime comes up present day that links back to something from his past. His performance was fantastic. We’ve got some really good stuff coming up — really solid shows and guest stars. Agent Borin (Diane Neal), our coast guard character comes back for a storyline. Familiar faces and good stories and then that’ll lead us up to the introduction of Ellie Bishop.

What really made you want to write this character specifically as sort of a successor and as a new part of this team?
Well I don’t necessarily view her as a successor. The way we approached it was, how do we bring someone new into the fold? What could she bring to the group and to the party? Bishop is a NSA analyst, and she’s a thinker. She looks at the world in a very global way; she looks at everything, life, in a global way. That’s a big part of the way that our group is evolving. Our agents are evolving — they’re looking at terrorism in a different way, they’re having to approach crimes in a different way and I think that having that view of the world is something that our people don’t necessarily have much experience in. So I think she’ll provide something different. I think she’ll emotionally provide something different. Emily Wickersham is a terrific actress. I’ve now spent a bunch of time with her; I’m really excited about what she’s going to bring to this and how she’s going to bring the character to life. We’ll have some fun with it.

Like you mentioned, NCIS is a show where we fall in love with characters over time. Is it going to take some time to get to know Emily as well? Ziva is a tough act to follow. Do you hope the audience is patient?
Oh yeah! I’m very realistic about what this is going to be and what this process is going to be. I think Emily is, too. We have to give people time; it’s really interesting! I feel like we’re trying to approach this as honestly and realistically and as organically as we can. You know, Ziva’s departure has finally happened. We then spend six episodes without anyone except for guests who have been coming and going. And then in November, they’ll get to meet Bishop and hopefully by then they’ll want to meet someone new and interesting who brings something to our team, but we’re just going to approach it step by step and write the best script we can write.

I did love Delilah’s introduction even though it was brief. Are we going to see her again?
You absolutely will see her again. You’ll see her again in an episode that’s coming up, and we have some plans for her a little later on as well. That’s a relationship that we’re having some fun with, and we’ve got some plans in store. I’m excited about it, actually.

Speaking of returns, I know that a lot of people felt that Ziva’s farewell episode left a little crack in the door. Maybe, twenty seasons from now when we’re closing off Tony’s story, do you you see a reunion? Any chance of Cote eventually coming back?
There’s nothing planned at the moment; there’s nothing in the foreseeable future. But you know me well enough by now — everything’s done for a reason and everything’s done intentionally and Ziva’s not dead. So, you know, we’ll see what the future brings.

What can you tell me about Ziva’s replacement on NCIS? — Julie
ADAM:
There will be a bit of a revolving-door situation at Ziva’s old desk for the next few weeks, and viewers won’t get a look at who will most likely be the permanent new team member until November. Fortunately, when Emily Wickersham’s NSA Analyst Ellie Bishop finally does report for duty, she will make a strong first impression during the NCIS team’s hunt for terrorist Benham Parsa. “He is a new face that we haven’t seen before and has a new approach to things,” executive producer Gary Glasberg says of the season-long villain. “Bishop will actually have a strong view and position on [Parsa]. She’ll be bringing something extra to the table.”

EXCLUSIVE: With NCIS continuing to reign as the most watched scripted show on television and getting ready to spawn a spinoff series, the man behind both, Gary Glasberg, has been signed in a new overall deal by NCIS producer CBS TV Studios. Under the two-year extension that runs through May 2016, Glasberg will continue as executive producer and showrunner of flagship NCIS and of its proposed planted spinoff, which will be introduced in a two-part NCIS episode slated to shoot in February and air in the spring. He is writing the New Orleans-set offshoot and is executive producing with NCIS star/executive producer Mark Harmon. Glasberg called the experience working with CBS’ Leslie Moonves and Nina Tassler and CBS Studios’ David Stapf “amazing”, adding “I look forward to continuing to work with my NCIS family and can’t wait to dive in to what lies ahead,” Glasberg, repped by CAA and Michael Gendler, joined NCIS in 2009 and took the reins as showrunner two years later. NCIS closed out the 2012/13 season, its 10th on the air, as the most watched program on TV for the first time, with an average of 21.60 million viewers, edging Sunday Night Football (21.00 million). So far this season, the veteran drama is the most watched scripted program on TV in Live+same day and also ranks among the top 10 U.S. series in a number of international markets, including Canada, France, Italy as well as Australia, where it is in the Top 3.

As CBS’ NCIS continues its 11th season (tonight at 8/7c), the tweaked opening credits may lack a certain “kick,” but the song remains the same, as Leroy Jethro Gibbs and his team of agents — minus Cote de Pablo‘s Ziva David — go about doing what they do best. Showrunner Gary Glasberg shared with TVLine a look at certain reactions to the squad room shake-up and previewed new stories to come. Plus: an exclusive peek at a bittersweet Abby/McGee moment.

TVLINE | As the show returns, will much time have lapsed since Tony said goodbye to Ziva?
It’s a few days after Tony’s return from Israel — a literal week, because we try to play things in real time.

TVLINE | So, her absence is hanging in the air?
Oh, it’s very present. It’s a big part of quite a few episodes. You’ll see glances and references to the empty desk, but at the same time we try to get back to the fun and the humor and the lightness and the banter of the squad room — all the things that people like about our show. But we’re not hiding from it, it’s acknowledged.

TVLINE | When last I spoke to Michael Weatherly, he was quite excited about where he sensed Tony was going after this. What can you say about his story moving forward? Has Tony changed?
Yes, I think Tony has changed a bit. He’s matured. He’s experienced a loss in his personal life, and I think it’s going to affect how he moves forward. It’s certainly affecting how we as writers are handling him. He’s still very much Tony — he still cracks a joke and lights up the room with a smile and has some fun, but there’s also a seriousness. There’s a step forward that has happened, and I don’t think we’re hiding from that.

TVLINE | Who would you say is second-most affected by Ziva’s absence?
That’s an interesting question…. I think Abby certainly feels it. Ducky comments on it. McGee certainly feels it….

TVLINE | Gibbs seemed to dread taking her phone call….
The interesting one for me is Gibbs, because I think he really does feel it, but in classic Gibbs fashion, he’s not going to show it. That’s the challenge of writing to it, and that’s the brilliance of Mark Harmon as an actor — how do you show that beneath the surface and not have someone come out and say what they’re feeling?

TVLINE | New opening credits, I assume?
Yes, a different main title sequence. That was an interesting process, as well — emotional and challenging. But yeah, a little different.

TVLINE | Is Benham Parsa the Season 11 big bad you told me about at summer TCA?
[That threat] is significant and it will pop back up again. It’s going to mean something. And I think it represents interesting stuff that’s happening in our world. As we move into what I call the “more traditional” episodes of the show, just be aware that he’s still out there. He will end up on the Most Wanted wall.

TVLINE | What else is coming up?
You’ve got this [week’s] “Under the Radar” episode, which is kind of a “reset” for us. That’s where Roma Maffia (Nip/Tuck) has this fun stint as a retiring agent who helps us out in the squad room. In the episode after that, Muse Watson comes back as Mike Franks, in a really emotional storyline for Gibbs. Those are all flashback scenes, and they’re really nicely done. Lolita Davidovich (Blaze) is also in that episode. After that, you’ve got Tony’s return to Baltimore, for some more insight into who he was — even before he became a detective.

TVLINE | What precipitates that?
There’s a crime that comes up that “connects the dots” a little bit and brings up some memories, and honestly revisits a whole bunch of things. Again, I’m really content with the slow build of getting back on our feet after [Ziva’s departure]. And then coming up in November, we’ll introduce everybody to [Ziva’s potential replacement] Ellie Bishop.

TVLINE | Some fans worry Bishop will be just a “female McGee.”
That was because there was a line that either I or someone threw out there, that described her in a specific way, as being… I forget what the phrase was. But she’s not [like McGee]. Emily Wickersham is a terrific actress and she’s going to bring a whole new spin and life to this character. That episode starts prepping next week, and I think she’s going to bring something fun to this group.

TVLINE | Lastly, were you relieved to see ABC’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. not ding your numbers much at all? Was that on your mind?
It’s funny — every season, this stuff comes about and I’ve learned that all I can do is focus on the shows that I make. Especially this season, more than ever. Season 11 wasn’t supposed to have all the bumps and curves in the road that it has, and I’ve focused on making the best show that we can make. Whatever unfolds elsewhere, that just happens. There’s not much I can do about it.

“NCIS” returns on Tuesday night minus long-time team member Ziva David (Cote de Pablo), and the special agents have to put their emotions aside and get back to the business of solving crimes involving the military.

While no one can take Ziva’s place, Vera Strickland (Roma Maffia) joins the “NCIS” team Tuesday for an episode that requires the team to rely on Twitter for a case involving a missing Navy lieutenant.
Record Series

“One of the ideas we had was introducing a character on the verge of retirement, who Gibbs [Mark Harmon] has history with, and she steps back in and helps on this one last case before she is done,” executive producer Gary Glasberg told XfinityTV.

Then things get complicated for McGee (Sean Murray), who has lost his NCIS credentials, and withholds the information from Gibbs and the authorities.

Glasberg also opened up about why Ziva’s exit was handled the way it was, why there were no bedroom scenes between Tony (Michael Weatherly) and Ziva, and a special upcoming Christmas episode, featuring NCIS Director Leon Vance (Rocky Carroll).
Watch last week’s episode of “NCIS,” featuring Cote de Pablo’s final farewell:

XfinityTV: It was interesting. I thought Ziva’s final episode would boost the show’s numbers, but not so much. Did that surprise you?

Glasberg
: The fact that we did 20 million people and our DVR number will go up another 2 or 3 million after that, I am not going to scoff at that in any way. It is extraordinary. It is remarkable. Our Facebook friends are now up to 17.5 million and change. I am just happy that we are doing what we are doing and continue to be as successful as we are.

I was surprised that you didn’t use Ziva more in these last two episodes. She was really only in the final half-hour of Episode 2.

I have said before, too, the first episode was in flux for quite a while. I wasn’t planning on her departure, so when I got the call that it was happening, I basically had to take the Gibbs story, the sniper story, and the terrorist story that I was already playing with and then add this whole other element of Ziva’s departure on top of it. I knew I couldn’t do that in one episode. So that is how the two-parter came about.

In the planning of it, because we were already starting to be in prep for the first one, there were tricks and things we had to do in order to incorporate Ziva’s character because I literally didn’t have her. So that is why you got texting and instant-messaging to make her a part of the episode [instead of her being] onscreen.

I knew that we were going to have her significantly for the second one, but the reason that you don’t see her significantly until the second half of the second one is that I wanted to give Tony the time to search, to really invest in looking for her. I felt like the audience really needed to feel what he was feeling. That was our decision for structuring it the way we did.

I think, for me, I wanted to see them more intimate — like a bedroom scene — not just a kiss. Of course, they spent time together and who knows what they did, but I wanted to see it. Why did you decide not to take it farther?

I am a big believer in less is more and let people’s imaginations run wild. Whether it is a moment of intimacy, or imagining what that conversation was at the end of the episode, we have an amazing fan base who follows the show. So, I think every person out there has an idea of what that conversation would have been. I was very happy with the idea of letting people imagine for themselves.

That said, will we ever find out what Ziva said to Gibbs on their phone call?

No. Like I said, let people have their own idea of what that conversation was. That is between Gibbs and Ziva. I like the idea [of letting] people think for themselves a little bit.

So, now we’re back to business as usual, and I see that Roma Maffia is joining the team on Tuesday’s night episode. How long will she be staying and what affect will she have on the team?

Roma came and just did one episode with us, the idea being that there are a number of episodes following Ziva’s departure, where, as we are dealing with her absence and as we are dealing with that empty desk in the squad room, we are also experiencing and returning back to a lightness and fun and all the reasons why people like to watch “NCIS.”

Roma was fantastic. Then that goes on for another few episodes, where we have some fun and have some guests who come through, like Agent Borin [Diane Neal] from the Coast Guard. It is a fun assortment of characters that will, hopefully, help us reset and get back to the traditional reasons why we watch the show.

This episode seems to be geared more for McGee what with Twitter and his lost badge. Is the focus on him and why is the lost badge so important? Is it how he lost it? Or maybe the fact that he had resigned not too long ago?

“Under the Radar” is the name of the episode. It is not really a McGee-centric episode. He plays a big part in it, but it is really about resetting our team and getting back to the stories that we like to tell. The badge storyline is true. It is not a good thing to lose your creds. You don’t want to lose your credentials as a federal agent. If those are out in the ether, if those are found by someone, they can enter buildings. It gives them access to things people shouldn’t have. When you misplace your creds, it is a serious, significant issue. We have known about that for a long time and we wanted to have some fun and tell that story. So that is where it came from.

The team is kind of shell-shocked. Vance lost his wife, Ziva is gone. Are we going to see the emotional ramifications of all these things through the entire season? Or is it back to basics?

People have a job to do. There is a terrific scene coming up in Tuesday’s episode, where Gibbs says just that: “There’s work to be done.” They’ll get back to the cases, of course, but the realities of what they’ve been dealing with will continue. That includes a really terrific Christmas episode that is coming up, where we will revisit everything that Vance has been dealing with in his personal life with his kids and figuring out how he is getting his life back on track after the loss of his wife. Those things are still present. Just as we always do, we will step away and handle whatever situation comes up.

The “Under the Radar” episode of “NCIS” airs Tuesday, Oct. 8, at 8/7c on CBS.

I liked the new IT guy, Murray, who was in the NCIS Season 11 premiere. Will we see him again? –Kathi
“You actually will see Murray again,” Glasberg reports of Will Harris’ character. “He turns out to be a lot of fun. We’ve enjoyed him.”

For now, NCIS has bid farewell to Ziva David.

After Cote de Pablo abruptly decided to leave TV’s most-watched drama this summer, producers had to find a way to tie up Ziva’s narrative in short order. The result is Tuesday’s episode, in which Ziva’s will-they-won’t-they partner-in-crime-solving Tony DiNozzo (Michael Weatherly) goes to Israel to find her. Once he tracks her down, he begs her to return to Washington with him, but to no avail. She leaves him on the runway with a tearful goodbye and a long kiss.

How will Ziva’s exit affect Tony, Gibbs (Mark Harmon) and the rest of the team? Is there a chance for her to return? And why was her exit arc so, well, Ziva-less? TVGuide.com turned to executive producer Gary Glasberg for answers.

I think many people were surprised by the lack of Ziva in this two-parter. She didn’t appear at all in the premiere episode. What happened there?
Gary Glasberg:
We had to really step back and change what this opening was going to be. We didn’t see this coming, and part of the restructuring of this story line included sending Ziva off to Israel and Tony going after her. I think a lot of what people are reacting to in that first episode is honestly just the fallout. [There was] an uncertainty of the cards that we were dealt as writers and producers trying to make the show work. I’ll absolutely admit that having them instant-message and text was something that we needed to do because that was all we had to work with.

How did you decide on this ending for Ziva’s story? Was there ever any part of you that considered, as the show has done with other major characters, killing her off?
Glasberg:
Like you said, the show has a history of doing that to characters upon their departure. I thought that Ziva deserved better than that. And this was an emotional thing off-screen and on-screen. We wanted to do this properly. Hopefully, [it will] give the fans what they’ve been waiting for, and let these two characters part ways in a satisfying manner. I like the idea that — specifically in terms of Tony and Ziva, how they connect and the romance that exists —she’s still out there. For me, that really pulls at the heartstrings, and that was part of the decision as well.

How much does it weigh on Tony that he wasn’t able to convince Ziva to come back to D.C.?
Glasberg:
I don’t know if it weighs in a negative way, but it certainly resonates. There’s a lot going on with Tony, and that’ll continue as the season progresses. This really moves him forward in an interesting way. It acknowledges what that relationship really was and leaves the door open for what’s next for him. He has to figure some things out for himself, and there’s a maturing that’s going to happen for Tony. I’m not saying that we’re not going to see light moments for Tony DiNozzo anymore, but at the same time, he’s moved on. It’s on to the next chapter.

Will we see Tony dating again or do you think he will still pine for Ziva?
Gary Glasberg:
We’re really trying to handle this as realistically and organically as we can, and in the real world, it takes time to recover. It takes time to figure out what you want next in your life, and very often, the next person comes at the moment that you least expect. Is there anything that’s going to happen in the immediate future? Absolutely not. Tony just went through a lot, and has a lot to think about, and then we’ll be getting right back to work. Gibbs is going to want his team back together, and it’s time to focus on the work of NCIS.

I’m sure fans appreciated that kiss on the runway. But since Tony lied to Gibbs about when he actually found Ziva, are we to assume they were shacking up for a while?
Glasberg:
I don’t necessarily feel like it was weeks or months. It may have been a couple of days, but we never really specifically say. I think it’s clear that Tony and Ziva had some things to figure out on their own. Was it appropriate for them to keep that from Gibbs? Many of us believe Gibbs knew. Gibbs knows everything. He may have, and he may have recognized that they needed some time to themselves.

Speaking of Gibbs, what do you imagine Ziva said to him in the phone call that we saw but didn’t hear?
Glasberg:
That was a very deliberate decision on our part. We would like to believe that every viewer and fan of the show has their own idea of what that conversation is, and I’m not going to even begin to try to second-guess for everybody what Ziva David would say to Leroy Jethro Gibbs in her farewell. I like letting everyone decide for themselves and savor that moment.

How much of an impact does losing Ziva as a team member have on Gibbs?
Glasberg:
It means a lot. The fantastic part of Gibbs as a character is that he’ll never really tell you how he feels. Those emotions are there, but he may not let you see them. And when he does let you see them, it’s going to happen at a time when you least expect it and it’ll happen without words. You’re not going to hear from him how he feels, but hopefully you’ll feel it.

And the rest of the team?
Glasberg:
It’s very much a family. Ziva’s departure affects all of them, and they all comment on it. It resonates with all of them, and they all have different views on things and that’ll get discussed, especially in the first couple of episodes without Ziva. But there reaches a point, too, where people have to regroup and they have to re-focus. If anybody’s going to make that clear, it’s going to be Gibbs, because that’s the way he lives his life.

You’ve stated before that there’s no replacing Ziva, but what can we expect from the people who will be sitting at her desk in the coming weeks?
Glasberg:
In the next episode, we have some fun with Roma Maffia. She plays an agent on the verge of retirement who adds a unique energy to things and a lightness, and we have a terrific time with her. You’ve got Agent Borin [Diane Neal], a Coast Guard agent who comes back and fills that void in a really interesting, fun way. You’ve got McGee’s new flame, Delilah [Margo Harsman], who steps up in one scenario and participates more. We have some fun with some guests, and I’m really excited about that, and I think it works really nicely. And then we get to November, and everyone gets to meet the NSA analyst, Eleanor Bishop [Emily Wickersham]. I’m really excited about what she’s going to bring to this character, and we have big plans.

NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on CBS.
